“The demand for financial advice is stronger than ever, which is why it is important for us to support the next generation of financial planners with the tools that will enhance their skillset and offer exposure to technology standards in the industry,” said Celeste Revelli, CFP®, director of financial planning at eMoney. “We’re also focused on expanding access to a career in financial planning, and we hope providing scholarships will encourage participants to take the next step toward a rewarding profession.”
The FPA Virtual Externship was first created in 2020 to support students whose internships were cancelled by the Coronavirus pandemic. Now in its third year, the Externship is available to FPA members who are students, career changers, new professionals, and seasoned planners. Throughout the program, participants can learn more about financial planning and its application, as well as technology, from their own home with in-depth lessons including a session about FinTech careers as an option for financial planning, real-world assignments, detailed tutorials and walk throughs, weekly Q&A office hours to answer eMoney questions, and self-assessments to become eMoney-certified.
As part of the Externship’s curriculum, participants will have the opportunity to earn the eMoney Fundamentals Certification to demonstrate their proficiency in the software through access to eMoney Premier, eMoney’s most robust planning solution. Participants will also receive access to Incentive, eMoney’s financial planning and wellness app, which will be used as part of budgeting and cash flow instruction. Prior Externship participants have noted, “The externship is worth joining simply for the eMoney access.”
